  • For the salad, heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the chicken 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through It may take a lot longer depending on the thickness. Remove from the pan, allow to rest and then slice into chunky strips.
  • In the same pan, cook the pancetta until crispy and golden. Transfer to kitchen roll to absorb the fat.
